IBM selects LogicLibrary's Logidex as the catalog and search engine for locating partner solutions built on IBM's Express portfolio.

LAS VEGAS—LogicLibrary Inc., a provider of software asset management tools, Tuesday announced that IBM has selected its Logidex software component management system as the catalog and search engine for locating partner solutions built on IBMs Express portfolio.
